Community Action Group, Feeding the Gaps, along with Oxford City Council and Good Food Oxford have launched a map and database of food services providing free or subsidised food within Oxfordshire.
The map provides people with information on what food services are available in the County, how to access them, and whether they are open to everyone or for referrals only, or only open at particular times.
The map came out of a Feeding the Gaps report that researched food poverty in Oxford; the report found that many people don’t always know where to go for help in finding food. There are many projects in Oxford working to tackle food poverty or redistribute food in various ways and this project will help make that information more accessible and support people in knowing what is available.
This will also be a valuable resource for key workers in Oxford, enabling them to give up-to-date food advice to people they are working with.
